Understanding Vision Boards

Whether you call it vision board, dream board, reality board or whatever name you have for it, vision boards have become very popular. But the question is, "Do you know why vision boards are used - what's their purpose, how effective they are and how to make them work for you?"

First of all, let's get into understanding what a vision board is. Basically, a vision board could be a collage of pictures, whether from others or your own, of the lifestyle you wish to create for yourself. It can also be one picture perhaps of a house you wish to purchase or a dream vacation you'd like to take. 

So what you're actually doing is collecting pictures of whatever your desire is and placing them on a surface in a prominent place with the intention that you'd manifest this in your life. 

So why are vision boards used?

The intention is to manifest what you want. But the science behind having a vision board is to imprint the  image into your conscious mind and then into your subconscious mind, which is your internal programming or auto pilot, in order to reprogram your subconscious to yield its power over to you. 

Let's break this down further

Your brain sees in pictures, right? So when you take the time to look at your vision board and really concentrate on every detail of your image, you are engaged in the imprinting process, the repetitive process of reprogramming the subconscious mind to accept this new image of what you desire to manifest in your life. 

You see, your subconscious mind does not discriminate as to what goes into it. It's like the soil of your garden that does not discriminate as to what seeds you the gardener decides to sow into it - that's the job of conscious mind. 

The conscious mind, like the gardener, is the decision maker. So when you decide what images you want to manifest in your reality, the subconscious takes that images and, like the soil, begins to 'grow' it. And as long as you don't interfere with the process by inputting negativity, your image will continue the growth process inside of you until it begins to crystallize in your outer reality, your experience.
